Spacious garden level studio in the heart of Commercial Drive. Easy access to all transport and mins to downtown. Enjoy what The Drive has to offer in all its varied glory!

The space
Our newly renovated cozy bright garden level studio is located only one block from Commercial Drive which was voted as one of North America's hippest neighbourhoods. On 'The Drive' you will find transit, grocery stores, coffee shops, live music, entertainment, and various ethnic restaurants to suit every taste. Our studio is also close to a number of parks including Grandview Park, Victoria Park and Trout Lake which hosts the Farmer's Market every Saturday throughout the summer. It's a short drive or bus/skytrain ride to downtown and a 30 minute drive to the local ski hills.

The studio is the garden level unit in a busy family home with teenagers. We try our best to create a quiet environment for our guests during late evening and early morning hours but sound can carry in this nearly 109 year old home. The studio has a private exterior entrance and there is a door inside which connects it to the house which can be locked from the guest's side for privacy.

Our house is a beautiful character home built in 1908. The studio is very cozy and a great space to stay in. The studio ceiling is low however we have not had complaints about it as guests are usually in an out and find the suite very cozy when they are there.

Our fully furnished studio includes:

- private entrance
- queen sized bed
- queen sized pull out sofa bed
- kitchenette with hot plate, toaster oven, bar fridge, microwave as well as all the necessary cooking utensils
- full bathroom with NEW stand-up shower
- coffee, tea, sugar, salt & pepper, and spices
- free wireless internet
- access to extensive library of films
- dining table and chairs
- beautiful wood work area with bar chairs
- large storage space
- hair dryer and iron/ironing board
- all linens and towels
- use of laundry suite for longer stay guests (pre-arranged schedule)
- first aid kit

We have called The Drive home for the last 10 years. Haig was born in the UK and raised in Ottawa. He ended up in Vancouver via Montreal and Toronto. Tamar was raised in the UK and after meeting Haig moved to Vancouver 15 years ago from London. We now have 2 kids, ages 13 and 10 and love living in this neighbourhood. It is a unique community of people and we love the closeness of everything and knowing our neighbours and the people in our community. We love meeting new people and are easygoing.
